Marathon Swiss Made Quartz Military General Purpose Watch with MaraGlo Green Illumination #WW194009-BK

The 34mm Marathon General Purpose Quartz is a very accurate watch built to strict military standards under MIL-PRF-46374G, Type I, Class 1.
Designed for field use by infantry or other military personnel, the General Purpose Quartz is built to withstand the needs of infantry, as well as civilians looking for a perfect casual watch.

Developed by Marathon Watch Company as a field watch to be issued to military personnel, the General Purpose Quartz is a watch that meets all the requirements of a true military field watch. Made from a highly durable, impact resistant fibershell case that is water resistant to 3 atmospheres (30 meters - 100 feet), sweat resistant and will not yield to the elements. The fibershell case of the General Purpose Quartz is also a passive matte finish, as to not give away infantry position through reflections, which would occur on a normal metal case. Fibershell also is an extremely lightweight material, an important factor on the battlefield where every ounce counts. The General Purpose Quartz now comes with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The back of the watch is made of 316L surgical stainless steel, a steel with low carbon content that will not corrode over time. Note: the caseback now has a user accessible battery hatch for changing the battery.

The General Purpose Quartz is made in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland to guarantee the highest level of quality and accuracy in manufacturing. Powered by a Swiss made, high torque, 3 jewel ETA F06 Quartz movement, the General Purpose Quartz guarantees you a high degree of accuracy in timekeeping. The ETA F06 is accurate to -0.3/+0.5 seconds per day and also includes an End of Life (EOL) indicator that will advance the seconds hand once every 4 seconds to inform you that a battery change is needed. The General Purpose Quartz uses MaraGlo photo-luminescent paint to illuminate its hands and dial markers. MaraGlo requires charging with an external light source and will glow on its own for 8 hours after being exposed to light.

The General Purpose Quartz combines military durability with Swiss craftsmanship to provide an accurate timepiece that will satisfy you for years of daily use.

    I replaced the original nylon strap with a leather Marathon NATO strap - much better.

    Not perfect, but a fantastic watch!

    I decided to try this watch after watching Mark's review. It is indeed small, but fits my 6" wrist well (wears similar to a Casio F91-W). The case design is both familiar and unique, with a very clean dial. After a few days, accuracy is dead on. I also like to sleep at night with a watch on to quickly check the time. The MaraGlo is amazing! After 7-8 hours, the lume is still charged enough where I can clearly read the time — lasting quite a bit longer than my Seikos where I struggle to tell the time after a few hours. As far as ticking, it is not loud to my ears — I don't hear it at night when it's on my wrist. What are the cons? After market strap options are limited at 16mm. There are some minor alignment issues with the dial. The seconds hand mostly lands on the markers. The placement of 14 and 22 hours are off (look the product photos). Time setting is a bit finicky: when I push in the crown to set the time, it jumps slightly if I'm not careful. Overall though, I love it.
